What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I have a hard time choosing one – you should see me in an ice cream shop. I sample as many as they will let me, and then still can’t make up my mind! But chocolate peanut butter anything is at the top of the list, and it is TheBetterHalf’s absolute favorite, so that is what I usually end up getting. And I have never had a better peanut butter chocolate ice cream flavor than the Double Peanut Butter Chip from McConnell’s. I take my ice cream very seriously so you can trust me when I say it is the absolute best. Then, when you sandwich it between brownies, and add some mini peanut butter cups to the mix, well the result is one of the best summer treats ever – Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

You don’t have to take my word for it though on the goodness of McConnell’s…I want to give YOU 6 pints of their awesome ice cream. Shipped from Santa Barbara right to your front door – scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!…

Today is a very important day – it is TheBetterHalf’s Birthday! As the biggest chocolate peanut butter lover of all time (I’m pretty sure he thinks he was the first person to like the delicious flavor combo), I of course had to make him something choco pb. And since I already made a chocolate peanut butter cake for Chez CateyLou’s birthday, I made TheBetterHalf Peanut Butter Brownies! Fudgy chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter layer sandwiched right in the middle – if that doesn’t scream Birthday Treat, I don’t know what does!
